ERE students actively participate in service learning projects and volunteering to work on local, national, and global issues. The department has four active clubs that expand your horizons while providing a fun social atmosphere.

Society of Women Engineers World Championship Kinetic Sculpture Race
ERE students volunteer to help the community learn about science, energy and our individual impacts on the environment

Environmental Resources Engineering Student Association (ERESA)

ERESA raises funds for student events, organizes student social activities, provides financial assistance for tutoring and works with all other engineering clubs. ERESA members may become student members of the American Society of Civil Engineers. All ERE students are members of the Environmental Resources Engineering Student Association (ERESA).

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) mission is to stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity. SWE plans events that inspire young girls to become involved in science and math. Women, men and non-engineers are encouraged to become members of SWE.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

The EWB Mission is to provide technical assistance to communities worldwide who have self-identified needs associated with improving their quality of life. These projects are conducted through implementation of environmentally and economically sustainable engineering projects that fulfill basic human needs and develop internationally responsible engineering students. EWB works on both local and international projects. ERE students and non-engineers are encouraged to join EWB.

Renewable Energy Student Union (RESU)

The purpose of the Renewable Energy Student Union (RESU) is to facilitate more renewable energy related activities for the Environmental Resources Engineering program. RESU students have worked with the Schatz Energy Research Center to develop a docent program where ERE students teach local school children about renewable energy and installed a solar radiation monitoring station on the library roof. RESU draws members from the both undergraduate ERE students and environmental systems graduate students.

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is a national organization that is at the forefront of advancing Hispanic individuals in the STEM fields--Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The SHPE-HSU club focuses on academic excellence and professional development. Other activities include community outreach and cooperating with other clubs. SHPE-HSU is not exclusive to Hispanic people and welcomes individuals of all backgrounds to join.
